  • Zanimljivo za obići, ima i par trgovina s suvenirima uglavnom religioznog karaktera, svijeće se pale unutar crkve.  more »
  • Veliko spolja, ništa iznutra. Arhitektura ružna, veći parohijski dom od rama, a crkvenjaci izmenili originalan izgled hrama po izgovorom da bi bio preskup. Tresla se gora, rodio se miš. Bolje posetite...  more »

  • Beautiful inside and out. It will be even better when fully finished. People are entitled to their opinions but anyone who says this is a failure of any type has no clue what they are talking about. The area surrounding the church is great to relax and spend the day. Great views of the city.
  • There is a lot of nice orthodox churches in Serbia, but this is not the one. Declared symbol of Belgrade can be interesting only to those who are really into religion. It is well known as an architectural failure, do not even try to find some aesthetic experience. The space is huge in the interior, and that can be interesting to experience. Not much more than that.
  • Not interesting but we made it twice to make sure. I wish we didn't go second time because interiors were disappointing. Impressive from outside though, tourist must do. Free entrance but it's under construction for 8 years already...
  • Very nice church, still not finished inside...
  • Biggest Ortodox church in Belgrade .From inside unfinished. Bkut from outside it looks marvelous.Surrounded with beatiful waliking area.
